I hope you are smiling.
Poop Soup. That has a great ring to it, doesn’t it? Now, the original recipe of this soup comes from a lovely site, which I will share in a jiffy. But first, some background info.
Sugar turns Lori into a raging lunatic. I love my life without sugar. I love love love my life without sugar.
I have been browsing the No Sugar food sections on Pinterest and ran into this lentil soup. There are several varieties out there; some have more of an Italian twist, with lots of basil/oregano, etc.
I loved this one from food blogger Cookie + Kate because it has cumin and curry powder. The cumin and curry TOTALLY rounded out this soup. I loved it. And I thought of my sister Kelly while I ate it. Because she likes good food and will most likely love love love this soup.
A quick note about the spices; I buy plenty of cheap spices but I always buy the expensive cumin and curry. Why? The flavor. Oh. My. Stars.
I upped the kale and added zucchini, which transformed Kate’s sweet soup into WOW, THAT’S A HELLUVA LOT OF FIBER SOUP, better named “If you Need to Poop Soup” by my 13-year old son.
By the way, this soup looks healthy. I mean, really healthy. Everyone at my table eyed it with distrust then opted for the chicken and noodle soup that smart Mama Lori provided.
I hope you enjoy Kate’s soup. Find the original recipe, Spiced Vegan Lentil Soup, on her site.
Pinterest is such a fun way to discover fabulous people. Food Blogger Kate is cool. This is from her bio: “This blog is all about celebrating good food—real, sustainable food that delights the senses and nourishes the body.” I love that. She has a sidebar with lots of helpful resources including “How to Start a Food Blog” as well as “How to Start a Blog.” I was super impressed with the amount of info she packed into her readily-available resources!
And without further chit chat, I raise my bowl, full with my version of this soup, to all of you that need a little relief.
